Sensitive private data, or personal data, is processed via our website. Photospecialist considers careful handling of personal data to be of great importance. Personal data is therefore carefully processed and secured by us.
In our processing, we adhere to the requirements of privacy legislation. This means that we:
Photospecialist is the data controller. In this privacy statement, we explain what personal data we collect and use and for what purpose at the website www.photospecialist.co.uk. We recommend you read this carefully.
If you have any questions, or want to know exactly what we track about you, please email [email protected].
When you place an order with us, we use your personal data to handle it properly. We may then give your personal data to our delivery service to have the order delivered to you. We also receive information about your payment from your bank or credit card company.
To do this, we use your e-mail address, phone number, billing address, name and address information, and payment details. We do this on the basis of your consent. We keep this information until your order is completed. We keep certain customer data for longer in connection with legal tax retention obligations.
If you return an item purchased online to us, we ask you to fill in the shipping label or sample withdrawal form (name, address, order number, reason for return (not compulsory)). We need this information to process your returned item(s) and, if applicable, send you a new item or refund the purchase price.
You can also return or exchange an online item at one of our shops. Items bought in one of our shops can also be returned or exchanged in our shops.
Certain areas of our website require you to register first. You then have to provide information about yourself and choose a username. With that, we create an account, which you can log in to with that username and a password of your choosing.
To do this, we use your e-mail address, IP address, name and address information, billing address and phone number. We do this on the basis of your consent. We keep this information for six months after you cancel the account.
We keep this information so that you do not have to fill it in again and again and so that we can contact you in the context of executing the agreement. You can edit information via your account whenever you want. For questions, changes or deletion of your account and/or personal information, please email us at [email protected]
We keep statistics on the use of our website. With these statistics, we improve our website to show only relevant information, for example. Of course, we will respect your privacy at all times in doing so.
We combine your Personal Data from different sources to provide you with the best online shopping experience. We do this by linking various data from you, such as account details, purchase history, reviews posted by you, as well as your browsing behaviour on our website on different devices, such as your computer, smartphone or tablet. It is also possible that we supplement or optimise your data with data from public sources or sources you have given permission to use.

You can object to this advertising at any time. Each letter says what to do. Each e-mail contains an unsubscribe link. You can block us or use the unsubscribe option. You can also pass this on via your account.
Reviews help our customers find what they are looking for. If you write a review, you have the choice of whether your personal data or name are visible to other visitors. It is also possible to use an alias as an alternative. You also have the option to indicate whether we may contact you as a result of your review.
Your review will automatically indicate whether or not you bought the product from Photospecialist. So this will appear with your review. With this, we aim to ensure the transparency and reliability of reviews on our website, and our customers can better value reviews. We check that you purchased the product on our website using the order details.
We only post reviews with your permission. As reviews are valuable to customers for a long time, we keep a review until you ask us to remove the review or until the review is removed by us under the review terms and conditions.
Our website displays advertisements. We see if people like them, and use that information to provide only fun or interesting ads and offers in the future.
